Hey everyone I just have a quick question regarding my athletics participation... I have played sports my entire life, I love playing them and watching them, etc. However, Currently I'm a Junior in High School and only playing one sport, Football. Though I doubt I'll be a Captain next year, I'll definitely be starting both ways on varsity. My Freshman year in High School, I played football and ran outdoor track, Sophomore year I did football, indoor track, but did not do outdoor track that spring, so I could lift weights in the off season. My reason for this is my experience in outdoor track got me in shape, but I found I lost a lot of strength and mass- with not much time (or energy for that matter) to lift. Mind you I wasn't an all-state runner per say, but still did pretty decent. Football on the other hand is my passion, and I wanted to be the best I possibly could for the upcoming season. Back to where I began, I'm now in my Junior year of high school and only playing football. I'm definitely not planning on receiving a scholarship to a D-1 Football SA program, but I am seriously committed to wanting to attend a service academy. This brings me to my question.. Will only playing one sport hurt my chances of getting into a SA? Football requires a large amount of dedication in the off season. Though there's no lifting team, I'm up in the weight room 4-5 days a week for 2 hours. I just don't think that I could count this as a sport though. I guess I'll give you some other facts so you can consider them; I'm an AP Student, I do a decent amount community service, haven't got my SAT scores back yet (5 days left) but I believe I'll be in the 600-700 range. I was accepted into into the USAFA SS and USNASS. My dad is a USNA alumni, put 36 years in the Navy, retired as RADM. Opinions are appreciated, thanks.
